this morning i was flipping through a book i bought last year called Innovation in Pattern and Print at The Fabric Workshop. i went to Philadelphia to check out the workshop/museum (dedicated to textile printing! i was so excited) but it was a big disappointment. mostly empty and deserted… it was very bizarre. it seemed like they were under construction or partially closed down– i couldn’t figure it out. but there was a small shop and i bought the book and this postcard, i had forgotten about the postcard until I just found it tucked inside the book. the artist is Laura Owens and the piece is hand embroidered and silkscreen printed on silk.
yesterday afternoon at the moma… some favorites:
browsing the E.R. Butler & Co. website after reading the Sunday Times story on the owner’s house in red hook, brooklyn– i was surprised to find products by designers Ted Muehling, Hella Jongerius, & others, in addition to the the beautiful architectural hardware.
clockwise from top:coral spoon, clam salt dishes, and bronze candlesticks- all by Ted Muehling.
